Making It Yours

Making It Yours

  When I was a little kid, I heard my aunt say to my mother that I have an olive complexion.  The only olive I had ever seen was green.  I looked at myself in the mirror and asked myself if I was really green.  I did not know that what it really meant was that I had a tanned complexion.  For years and years the thought came to me that when people looked at me I looked green to them.  I worked that into my fear of being around people.  My aunt was not trying to put me down.  … Continue Reading

Believe in Yourself

Believe in Yourself

Begin to make a list of your dreams and thoughts.  This is not a wish list or pipe dreams, but a list of the things you desire to see an increase in by setting goals and positioning yourself so that opportunities are not missed.  I heard someone say to me one time that they had an opportunity come into their life through something they had invented.  Then, somebody told them there was no market for it and it had already been done by someone else.

Embracing Change

Embracing Change

Today, I’d like to give you words of encouragement.  Regardless of the situation that you are confronted with, you can win.  I have heard it said that there are overcomers in this world.  I found out that you have to overcome, before you come over to another expression of love, life, faith, joy, and peace.  The circumstances are an invitation saying you cannot stay where you are and think you are embracing change.  I want to talk to you about increasing your attitude toward embracing change. Many times we want to rearrange things instead of turn the familiar loose.  I … Continue Reading

Learn How to Rest

Dr. Fluitt - How to Rest

Something that I have learned over these many years is the importance of rest.  We talk about an increase in money, time, talent, and treasure, but you also need to know how to have an increase of doing everything from a position of rest.  It is so significant.  I really believe God’s best is a people at rest; not always trying to achieve but simply coming to a place where, according to the Word of God, all your cares are cast on Him because He cares for you. I find it very relaxing to me that I can get a … Continue Reading
